Rented beach chairs and sat on the beach with my husband. Water was crystal clear, and it was amazing to see the plans fly right over your head. Beer specials on Sunday. You can... read more

Drinks were about average, and a little pricey. Restrooms were clean and free. The atmosphere here is a bit like a fraternity party, and the most exciting thing to do or watch there is the planes taking off and landing at Princess Julianna airport. Staff seemed friendly, and it wasn't bad, just not as remarkable to me as some other... More

I have to say if you remotely like flight, in any respects, this is the place for you. It is exhilarating to stand under or behind a landing or taking off jet. WOW! The food here is very tasty as well. We had the coconut shrimp in spicy orange sauce. To pass the time in between landings we did indulge... More

Let's be honest: you don't come here because of the food or service quality. You come here because of the awesome views of planes landing over the Maho beach, which is right next to it. These are unbeatable... The food is fine, but the service leaves a lot of room for improvement. It's slow, waitresses sometimes forget about the orders... More

We organised a trip from our cruise boat to this famous beach to see the planes arriving at just a few feet above the beach. We were not disappointed! The cafe restaurant is perfectly positioned for great views of the arriving aircraft. It is so amazing to watch, even my wife got excited by the "show". The cafe offers a... More

Our family took a cab from the cruise port to to Maho Beach. We initially thought it would be a bust with the crowded beach, but we ended up having a great time. Cab prices are set and the 30 minute ride was a bit long but we did not regret it once we arrived. Food was awesome and watching... More

The view from Sunset Bar and Grill is great, especially to see the planes landing. The airport runway it's just a few feet away from the ocean. The service at the bar is very slow, not enough staff. Also, the restaurant smells very bad, like sewer. We tried to have lunch here but went could not stand the sewer smell.

Great place to enjoy watching the planes land and take off. Enjoy time on the beach or get a table and order food. Fun atmosphere, good drinks and food.

Great place to eat and drink. Just kick back and watch the planes come in. Easy access to Maho Beach also. Parking was simple, park free if you get your ticket validated.

We love to sit, eat and drink while we watch the planes land. You have a perfect view of the beach and bay.
